Grégory Schneider is a chemist and graduated from the University of Strasbourg in 2005. After a postdoc at Harvard with George Whitesides and at TU Delft with Cees Dekker, he is now a Tenure Track assistant professor at the University of Leiden. Gregory Schneider was recently awarded an ERC-Starting (2013), VIDI (2014), VENI (2014, Dr. Fu), Marie Curie (2016, Dr. Zhang), and SME-KBBE (Decathlon, 2014). His research activities put chemistry at the center of 2D materials research with the major goal of understanding and rationalizing molecular transport through (nanoporous) two dimensional membranes. Applications range from selective membrane filtration of water and analytes for sustainable (blue) energy applications to fabricating arrays of nanopore and nanogap sensors able of high throughput DNA/protein sequencing for evolutionary, heath and analytic application.
